Mini Frittatas To Go


I wasn't quite sure what to call these....tofu scramble in a muffin tin, popovers, mini frittatas? They are kind of like those egg muffin cups you see on Pintrest - only vegan - so minus the egg.

I came up with this recipe to make tofu frittatas more portable, so I doubled the recipe and cooked them in a muffin tin. They turned out great! Exactly what I was picturing. These are easy to take on the go for a savory, high protein breakfast.

Mini Frittatas To Go


2 blocks firm tofu, drained

2 tsp olive oil
1/2 onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 bell pepper, seeded and diced
2 cups greens, sliced thin (collards are good)
1 roma tomato, diced

1/2 cup garbanzo bean flour
2/3 cup nutritional yeast
1 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried parsley
1/2 tsp turmeric
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
2 tsp liquid smoke (optional)


Pre heat your oven to 350 degrees.

Drain the tofu while you prep the veggies.

Heat 2 tsp olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Cook the diced onion until it begins to soften and turn translucent. Then add the garlic and saute for a minute more. Add the bell pepper, greens, and tomato and cook for another 5 minutes.

Take the veggies off the heat and reserve.

Put the tofu, garbanzo bean flour, nutritional yeast, baking powder, soy sauce, oregano, parsley, turmeric, salt, pepper, and liquid smoke (if using) in a food processor. Process on low until all the ingredients are incorporated, you will need to scrape down the sides a couple of times. Then add the veggie mixture to the tofu mixture and pulse to incorporate, or mix by hand to combine.

Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray. Scoop the tofu-veggie mixture into the muffin tins to fill each of the 12 cups. Bake for 45 minutes. Let cool for a few minutes.
